Velvet Mountain Aggregates supply crushed rock (mainly Dolmite for a variety of construction uses. We produce everything from low-grade fill materials through to single-sized clean stone for use in added-value products such as ready-mixed concrete and asphalt.
Sand and gravel
The fundamental difference between sand and gravel is the particle size, anything that passes through a 2mm sieve and is retained on a 63 micron sieve is classed as sand, with all particles retained on the 2mm sieve classed as gravel. The rounded shape is the most noticeable characteristic of gravel, however, this shape can provide poor aggregate interlock in asphalt mixtures and this is why crushed aggregate is preferred. In concrete mixtures the smooth texture of gravel can provide a greater level of workability.
Aggregates – landscaping
We have — literally — tons of aggregate. Choose your size — crusher fines to boulders — and colour pale shades to more vibrant colour . Or select from our stock of unique materials. We can also make specialty aggregates for your project. Aggregates and decomposed granite are versatile and affordable landscaping materials. They’re ideal for: a pathway in a garden, a gravel walkway or driveway, and a landscape with crushed stone.
